|My grandmother, Dorothy Doty Ordway|
and Marie Ordway Baker
Marie Julia Ordway was the youngest daughter and last child of Lemuel and Elizabeth Ordway. Her middle name was the same as one of her mother's older sisters, Julia Delph Spangler. Marie was born on 24 June 1904 in Monroe Township, Henry County, Ohio.
The 1930 census found Marie at age 25, still living at home with her parents in Malinta and employed as an assistant cashier at a bank. I can remember Aunt Marie once telling me that she was working at a bank when it was robbed! I am still searching for the clipping I once found of that incident and will post when it is located.
The census taker in 1930 visited in April, and by August 28th of that year, Marie married Charles J. Baker. She was a homemaker and mother of two children, living much of her life in Liberty Center, Ohio. She was, at one time, the clerk for the Village of Liberty Center, and a member of the Order of Eastern Star.
